'''Gnarl''' is the aged and much-feared [[Minion Master]] of the [[Minion]] horde, loyal servant of Darkness, advisor and personal right-claw of many [[The Overlord|Overlords]] throughout history. By his recurring appearances in all the Overlord games, it can be assumed that he is possibly the first minion ever spawned. The only other minion almost as old as him is [[Giblet]], which he mentions when touring the fourth overlord. He is very wise and he seems to know many languages. This is demonstrated when he translates the gnome communication when they declare war on the [[Fourth Overlord]], and also when he translates the mumbles of the [[The Silent Order|Silent Order]] to the [[Third Overlord]]. He also has a greater vocabulary than most minions, as he is to be smarter than the minions and has the same intelligence, if not more, than the overlord himself. He has a glowing crystal hanging from a wooden stick, strapped to his back. He uses the crystal as a lantern/illumination device, and judging from the glow, it could be a soul or Life Force, but it is currently unknown what it actually is. It is also unknown how he became more aware than the rest of his fellow minions, but it's suspected that he could be an overlord trapped in the body of a minion, and this is what causes him to betray the overlords and cause their downfall.
